    Those are actually the 29-3 Team Issue tires....and I am really impressed with them. I may have to try them on my Superfly100 at some point!

    New (to me) fork installed. Plus the bike is a little dirty, so you know it gets ridden!

    I know that Trek swallowed up the Gary Fisher brand back in 1995.. but this new TREK logo dwarfing the minuscule "Gary Fisher Collection" tag.. hmmmm....?

    I don't particularly care for it, but the reasoning behind it makes sense:

    I have two Mt Tams, one LG the other MED. Both are Gary's first production 29ers from 2002. I have alot of miles on each, few upgrades over the years just to keep them on the trail. The color is called "flippin green" due to how the light reflects and changes it from brown to green.

    Ewwww where did all that dirt on the tire come from? (:-)) Just kidding. Looks like you have detailed those bikes to the point you could eat off of them.

    Great looking (and clean) Fishers both. Nice work.

    They aren't usually THAT clean (the Marlin was freshly built up with all the new parts and the Superfly was brand new) But I have a bike rack in the house, I store my bikes indoors so I wash them and lube them after rides and then put them in the house.

    Another Craigslist Score

    Picked this up yesterday. It had been swapped to this new and only ridden for 173 miles on asphalt only. It's like buying a new/old stock bike.

    It looked like this yesterday-

    My 2009 Superfly again after a make over. After popping the top tube open right down the seam in the carbon Trek warrantied the frame with 2010 model. Since posting brand new bike pics it's got a new frame, new fit parts - stem, post, bars, grips, seat, and brake upgrade so that means new pics.

    I uploaded this photo set about a year ago. And my 2010 X-Cal is still going strong.
    Only this time I have my race team kit to upload with it.

    See you all on the trails.

    My new to me 08 Superfly. Been looking for a clean 2008 for a while now. I just think they're the best looking SF IMO. Took some parts of my Paragon & this is now my main ride!

    '09 Tassajara

    This is my "new" Tassajara. Got it from a guy that moved up to a 29'er. Paid two hundred bucks for it. Man am I stoked. Can't wait till it's warm enough to ride. Quit smoking in '98, and started doing single track on a Mongoose Sommet. Started back smoking in '04. I quit again a couple weeks ago, this time for good and really looking forward to putting this Fisher through some good single track.

    Im about 5'10" and the bike is a 55cm. I was actually considering an upgrade this fall and I road a Bianchi Via Nirrone, C'dale Super Six, C'dale synapse alloy, Scott Speedster and, at that point, I gave up. Nothing felt as comfortable as the Fisher. So, I found a used grouppo, bought a 105 crank, and I'll have new wheels in the spring for it.

    The LBS was all out out of Cronus, though. I should have tried to get on one of those. Maybe the geo is similar?

    I'm not sure, I got the frame on eBay for $700 w/ ceramic bearings and swapped a bunch of stuff over from a Lemond. I've never ridden the cross bikes, but love the look of them and the dropouts are dope. I've never had a carbon bike and really want a steel bike to be honest. All I've had in the past is steel and I just prefer the look, feel, longevity. I love my Filmore but want to put some fatty tires on it and there is no clearance is the only reason I'm looking at anything else.

    I really hate that this thread has the one dude who posted 50 close-up pictures of every single component on his bike because even with a fast connection I have to wait for them to load...argh!

    I think you may be thinking of the Lane. The Rail was an aluminum road bike, 2010 model year. It was not carried over into the Trek GFC.

    I like the Lane. Cool frame. A little pricey for the part spec, no doubt due to the higher cost of the frame.
    Worked at Trek/Fisher dealer 2008-2013. Only a little biased.

    Sorry for yet another "garage door" picture, but it is all I could do....even forgot to pop the rear reflector off. Anyway...here is my first 29er. A 2010 GF HiFi Deluxe. Bought it as a leftover off my LBS showroom for under 2K. It's wet and melting snow outside, but I am heading south to get in some riding. Can't wait to see how it rides compared to my 26er Trance X2. I've ridden my buddy's 08 and this one was pretty sweet in the parking lot...



    Narrowed the bars just a bit....still need to add the pedals....

    New, to me anyway, Gary Fisher Piranha. It replaces my old Trek 3700. This is what it looked like when I first got it home. I've made a few changes since then, changed the seat, clipless pedals, added my rear rack, and added a bunch of dirt to it.

    Here's a few shots of my new Rumblefish I. I've added grip shifters and a SRAM rear derailleur. Will get action shots when the snow melts.

    Biking on tropical Saipan Island

    We are a three Fisher family,soon to be five. Here is a '96 Xcaliber RX in an unusual 11 1/2 inch frame. It is ridden (hard) by my 6 year old son who has medaled with it riding the adult courses in local mtn bike races. No fear plus a light bike = fast. The 2004 GF Supercaliber 29er is ridden by his Dad. I'm a lot slower and finish last if at all in local Saipan races. I also ride the modified 96 GF Joshua Z which is incredibly light and now with a fox RP2 long throw on the back and a SID 120 on the front finally actualizes the potential of this simple and light frame without all the bobbing. Even I am fast on this bike. We have matching GF Sugars on the way. One Medium 17" on the boat headed this way as a full bike for the mom of the house and one XL 21" already here as a frame I am building up for me. 5 fish is a lot of sole. Put another way, when the chips are down, we go fishing.

    The forks came off a 2006 Kona Stinky. Its a Marzocchi Drop-Off Tripple. Got a lot of criticism from the bike shops being an XC bike with DH/FR suspension, but it was the cheapest approach for me on getting the best of both world. I also have an Giant Glory BTW and I prefer the Possum anyday

    here is my baby. It's been keeping me riding and "sane" for the last 11 yrs. It was origanly blue flake, I striped it down repainted it, put on a set of team issue decals. Changed fork to a manitou from the RS Indy that it came with. Other than that it is all stock. Nothing beats the old "Steely"

    '10 Gary Fisher Superfly 100, 17.5".

    Mods/upgrades:
    Wheels: Edge XC Clincher, Chris King Hubs
    Tires: S-Works Captain 2.2 2Bliss F, 2.0 R with regular tubes
    Seatpost: Crank Bros Joplin R (3" w/remote)
    Saddle: WTB Rocket V SLT
    Pedals: Sunline V-1
    Stem: Thomson Elite X4 50mm
    Bar: Easton Monkeylite CNT 685mm low rise
    Grips: Ergon GP1 Leichtbau
    Bonty XXX bottle cage (taking it off most likely cause I don't use it)
    Cheap Sette/Price Point frame protectors on fork crown and frame for cable rub

    Everything else stock.

    I'm pretty happy with how it is now. I might try it with faster tires, but the cornering grip these Captains has been growing on me (maybe cause I've been riding in hero dirt conditions recently). I might install a bell and cyclometer later when I feel like it. From the way it's built, you may wonder why I didn't get a Rumblefish. I actually wanted one, but I got a deal on this and the Rumblefish had a wait list.

    Chris,

    If you truly want a super light bike...dump those RXL wheels and get some stans hub/crest rim wheels. I just swapped mine out on my 2011 SF and lost just over a pound. Although I am still running the stock XO in the 2x10 setup, I went from 23lbs6oz to 22lbs2oz just by swapping the wheels. You could be sitting at just over 19lbs with that little change. The RXLs are advertised to be in the 1700gm range but in reality they are closer to 2000.

    Nice looking bike though. BTW...is the direct mount for your front derailleur missing?

    Really? The wheels felt pretty light. Where you running them tubeless before you got rid of them? Tubes could easily account for 1lb. Ill have to look into that thanks for the heads up. I am not a super light rider so I just didn't want to go to to light on the wheels so figured these would be good to go.

    I have a similar hitch rack. I've ordered a Rumblefish and will require a cross bar like yours to mount the bike on the rack. Does it work well? Any play forward and backward? I don't want my bike swinging on the rack.

    If you have a similar rack, you'll note that the bike connects using 3 rubber straps; 2 across the top of the top tube and 1 on the seat tube (vertically). This third one prevents the bike from swaying back and forth.

    I've used a Thule cross bar like the one pictured all last season with no problems.

    Chris,

    Yes! I do run tubeless. The actual weight of the RXL wheels with no tubeless rim-strips, no valve stems or skewers is 1950gms. So, by the time you put all the tubeless stuff on, you are looking at 2100gms. The Stan's wheels I got are the standard ZTR hub, ZTR crest rim, Supercomp spokes (220lb rider weight capacity) and they weigh in at 1550gms. Those are by no means their race-day wheel....but not their super duty all-mountain wheel either.....the weight savings (especially rolling weight) is huge!

    My 2007 XCal after I finished dropping the 185mm Elixer CRs on it last summer:

    I find it to be the perfect bike for anything the Lower Peninsula of Michigan has to offer (boy does it rock The Iceman).

    My 2011 Hifi Pro (with the seat WAY too high):

    Has been ridden around the block once, but I'm quite confident that I'll love thrashing it around the various awesome stuff the UP has to offer (I'm looking at you Copper Harbor Fat Tire Festival).

    Mine is its own bike stand! None of that fancy stick gadgetry needed!


    That was actually my worst fall to date, blood wise. I've done nothing but crash since I picked this bike up a month ago. It's just so damn fast!!!

    You guys need to stick adjustable seatposts in those RF1s. Trust me. 4" ones should do the trick.

    If you feel like it, try platform pedals and Five Ten shoes (their mtb ones, not skate ones) too, but the adj seatpost is super highly recommended... almost a must.

    I wonder if Red Shield would cover that rim. I doubt it, but I just wonder.

    Ya, that'd be the nice, but I looked at other pics and see that the low angle top tube makes the seat seem higher on all these models. I don't feel like a freak anymore. If I had bought a bigger frame along, I'd feel like I was on 19th century bike. The high seat might be why tyrone feels like he is losing control at high speeds and crashing all the time.

    Nope, no the seat, I just push myself way to hard when I ride alone or at the front of the pack. Thats the only time I crash. Just need to reign myself in a little bit!

    It also doesn't help that South Florida trails are so damn tight and technical!

    Same here--when I'm in front or ride alone, I also tend to push it. I really do think you guys should consider the adj seat. Put your seatpost down and try to ride the same high speed sections of trails. Having the seat out of the way increases your ability to guide the bike and flow so much.

    I put off trying one for a while, despite hearing the same from others, and now I'm considering it for my other bikes, but then I think that I should actually sell my other bikes since this Superfly 100 is so good.

    You can get the Front C29ssmax separate? Interesting. Hope you didn't pay much. Those come down to $500 a pair sometimes. My LBS didn't have anything 29er, but found that and suggested that to me when I had a wobbly wheel too, but I went with i9 enduros, something beefy.

    Yeah, I probably over paid for it at the LBS, and yeah, he got me just the front for now since there was really no savings over buying both at the same time.

    Well I finaly got my baby back from the powder coaters yesterday. I built it up last night. I switched over to a 1X8 set up, added a new stem, riser bar, seat post and seat. Still need to get a new pair of grips and the LBS has a Paul chain guide on order for me. Oh I also need to put new cables all around, just threw the old on there so I could get a test ride on it. Here is a before and after. I'm not sure if I want to order new decals for it or just leave it as is, what do you think?
